Well I am confused.  This is what I found.  The 1998 date refers to the need for boater education and not a license.  What am I missing?  I have taken the Alabama Boater Education course and have my certificate.  But I was still under the impression I don't need a license to operate a boat in GA and am therefore exempt unless I operate more than 45 days per year in Alabama....something by the way I would love to do......but sadly life and work gets in the way.  :-)

Do you need Georgia Boating education?

Georgia

You need education if you were born after Jan. 1, 1998, and will be operating a motorized vessel in Georgia.

There is no minimum age requirement to take this online course.

You do not have to be a resident of Georgia to take this online course.

 

Age and Operator Restrictions

Persons under 12 years of age:

  • May not legally operate a PWC or any vessel 16 feet in length or longer.
  • May legally operate a boat less than 16 feet in length and powered by a motor of 30 horsepower or less only if they are accompanied by a competent adult.

Persons 12 to 15 years of age:

  • May not legally operate any vessel 16 feet in length or longer.
  • May legally operate a PWC or vessel less than 16 feet in length if they:
    • Have passed a boating education course approved by the DNR or…
    • Are accompanied by a competent adult.

Persons 16 years of age or older may legally operate any boat or PWC on Georgia state waters if they have proper identification on board.
